A new DLC pack is being released for Gears of War 3 later this month, developer Epic has announced.

The Versus Booster Map Pack will offer five maps for public matchmaking playlists - two from Gears 1 (Swamp and Clocktower) and three from the just-released Horde Command Pack (Azura, Rustlung and Blood Drive).

Those who've purchased the Horde Command Pack still have exclusive access to that pack's Horde fortification upgrades, additional playable characters and new weapon skins.

After that, there'll be one further DLC pack available before the end of the year - the previously announced RAAM's shadow add-on - with more expected in 2012.
